National Resource, Partner & Advocate
The Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) is a national resource, partner, and advocate for state public health leaders who work and support state maternal and child health programs, and others working to improve the health of women, infants, children, youth, parents, families, and communities.
We build successful programs by disseminating best practices, advocating on behalf of our members in Washington, DC, providing technical assistance, convening leaders to share experiences and ideas, and advising states to reach our common goal of healthy children, healthy families, and healthy communities.

They include directors of maternal and child health programs, directors of programs for children with special health care needs, and other public health leaders who work and support state maternal and child health programs. AMCHP’s membership also includes academic, advocacy, community-based family health professionals, adolescent health coordinators, program managers, epidemiologists, family leaders, people with lived experience with the challenges AMCHP endeavor to solve, as well as families themselves.
